Pelosi issues strong statement against insurers. Check this report in Raw Story out.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) went on the attack against the private health insurance industry and urged Democrats to follow her lead over the congressional recess.
“[Private insurers] are the villains in this,” she said speaking to reporters outside of her offices. “They have been part of the problem in a major way. They are doing everything in their power to stop a public option from happening. And the public has to know that. They can disguise their arguments any way they want, but the fact is that they don’t want the competition.”
“The public option — that’s where the insurance companies are making their attacks — it’s almost immoral what they are doing,” Pelosi added, according to Politico.
